*Apologies for the lack of pictures… I seemed to have misplaced most of them.
You’ve all heard of the great skiing/snowboarding you can do in Whistler (it did host an Olympics after all). If you’re coming this far you might as well go all out and stay at one of the finest places in the main village area.
You have to fly to Vancouver (YVR) first and either rent a car or take a shuttle/buss. By car it’s roughly 1.5 hours each way.
Where I Stayed:
I had the privilege of staying at the Four Seasons in both Vancouver and Whistler. The Vancouver location is surprisingly affordable, central, and very well run. Facilities were top-notch and the restaurant YEW (which is led by Ned Bell) is a must visit for seafood lovers.
The Whistler location on the other hand does a great job of giving guests the posh that they pay for, while providing a winter cabin feeling in each room. Even the standard rooms are quite roomy with a fireplace and jacuzzi.
If you end up staying with any Four Seasons location, be sure to Tweet them ahead of time. There might just be a treat waiting for you when you get there.
